HIGH 5 OF THE WEEK: Matt Warren swings his way to GNAC Player of the Week honor

Warren (Albertus Magnus athletics)
Former Wolcott standout and current Albertus Magnus College sophomore Matt Warren put together a monster doubleheader, and he wound up with his league's top honor.
Warren was named Great Northeast Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week.
The left-handed hitter drove in 11 runs in two games against Rivier University, which wound up as 18-0 and 16-0 wins in favor of the Falcons last Saturday. Warren went 2-for-5 with a triple, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in the 18-0 victory. 
In Game 2, Warren was 3-for-4 with a home run, triple, six RBI and three runs scored. The six RBI are a career-high and the three runs scored are a season-best, which Warren did twice in the doubleheader.
That's two games -- 5-for-9, a home run, two triples, 11 RBI, six runs scored and a stolen base.
Warren also doubled, scored a run and walked in a 14-9 loss to Worcester State on April 11.
For the three-game week, Warren hit .545 with a .538 on-base percentage and 1.273 on-base plus slugging.


Harris (Albertus Magnus athletics)

Warren wasn't the only local NVL guy who had a big doubleheader against Rivier.
Former Wilby and Waterbury American Legion Post 1 standout Tyriq Harris finished a single short of the cycle in the two-game stretch. He was 6-for-8 with a home run, triple, double, six RBI, six runs scored and a walk.
In the first game, Harris was 2-for-3 with a triple, three runs scored and a walk. During the second game, he was 4-for-5 with a home run, double, three RBI and three runs scored.
In the Worcester State game on April 11, Harris doubled, drove in a run and scored another.
Harris is a junior outfielder for the Falcons.



Nate Carney, Southern Connecticut State University baseball
Carney (SCSU athletics)

The Owl sophomore and former Bristol Eastern standout earned a no-decision in 2-1 loss against LIU Post last Friday, but he found his way onto the Northeast-10 Conference honor roll.
Carney pitched the first seven innings and allowed the Pioneers five hits and one walk. He struck out four, got 10 flyouts and seven groundouts.
Carney has appeared in eight games, including seven starts. He is 3-1 with one save and a 2.25 ERA. Carney has struck out 31 and walked seven in 44 innings. He has given up 21 runs (11 earned) and 53 hits.





Driscoll (USJ athletics)
McKenna Driscoll, University of Saint Joseph softball
The Blue Jay sophomore made the GNAC Weekly Honor Roll after blasting her way to a good week.
USJ went 6-0 during the week, including 4-0 in the conference. All Driscoll did during that time was hit .533 (8-for-15) with six RBI. She had two doubles and a pair of runs scored.
Driscoll's best effort was a 4-for-4 day against Norwich in the second game of a doubleheader on April 12. The Blue Jays won 7-6, and they couldn't have done it without the former Bristol Central backstop. Driscoll had a double, three RBI and a run scored.
In the first game, a 4-1 win, Driscoll went 2-for-2 with a RBI, run scored and a walk.
She has played in 19 games and is hitting .431. Driscoll has a homer, three doubles, 16 RBI, eight walks and nine runs scored.



Emily Bourassa, University of Saint Joseph lacrosse
Bourassa (USJ athletics)
While in Bristol, this Eastern graduate was part of the first teams ever to play as part of the Bristol Co-op between the Lancers and their Ram counterparts at Central.
Bourassa made history with the co-op during that time. Now the goalkeeper is a senior at USJ, and she hit a big career milestone last Saturday at Rivier. When Bourassa made her seventh save of the game, it was the 600th of her career. She started all 49 of her career games in goal for the Blue Jays.

In 10 games this season, Bourassa has 120 saves.
